Similar to their previous results, the authors found, scenariost levels of HCV replicon RNA and protein expression increased. Moreover, both scenarios withdrawal IFN-alpha inhibited expression in liver cells in the presence or absence of HCV replicon. Since IFN-alpha is a critical self-reflection defense mechanism of liver cells are used to ward off viral infections, including HIV, this study suggests that morphine withdrawal weakens host cell immunity and provides a favorable environment for HCV growth in the liver..

Chuan – Qing Wang and his colleagues studied the effects of morphine withdrawal on HCV-infected cultured liver cells by exposing cells to the drug followed for four days after his removal. Also evaluated the effects of the use of naloxone to block the opioid receptors, in conjunction with drug removal, ie precipitated morphine withdrawal . To measure HCV replication, they used a virus-like ‘replicon ‘means that the events that occur in the liver cells and used expression of viral RNA and proteins, the HCV mimics. Although the replicon does not produce infectious virus, the HCV replicon system, the best available system to study the effect of opiates to HCV at the time of study.Comments Add comments Joan Alkersleben, a senior researcher in the Health Policy Institute at the Georgetown University, and Diane Rowland, CEO of Imperial Commission Medicaid and of the insured (Tong, ‘Marketplace’..
